ENFORCED UNPLANNED LOO STOP
Light to carry, easy to open while running, tasted ok (I only tried to orange one) and gave me a definite, much needed energy boost after 90 minutes but...
...for the first time I can remember I had to stop for a pee while running, not long after taking it. The caffeine was just too much for me! I now realise why so many people (men usually) have to make a detour into the bushes during a race.
Thankfully I experimented with these during training. Tried them 3 times and they always had the same effect so got some without caffeine and they were just fine. You live and learn!
